About this item
Sneaky lil 10" release from Ukokos featuring two reworkings (not edits) that flips a classic Steely Dan track and a rare Polish jazz-funk gem from Krystyna Pronko.
"Watcha Got" twists Steely Dan's "I Got The News" into a more fiercer and beefier nugget but still keeping true to the song's original jazz-funk roots. Ukokos uses much stronger, harder hitting drum hits on his version, making this bang harder for the jazz dancers but retaining that essential smooth soulful vibe that marks any good Steely Dan joint.
"Saison" blends EU jazz-funk (sources currently unknown) and futuristic, funked up clav patterns which a seriously forward leaning outlook - conjuring up a slice of jazz-funk that you could drop in the middle of a techno set - wonderful! Just wait for that breakdown too - an excellent way to swing the direction of music into a whole different direction.
Sil says: This is a funky, feel good 10' with a heavy dose of filtering on 'Whatcha Got'. Bar tackle some would say. But do not be misled. Make up your own mind because this is real good. Flip this bad boy and you get a more acidic approach to the edit world. Still a heavy stomper but a less obvious ones. Summarizing: this is gold.
